Abstract

Doorstep scams are scams, often happening at the front door, in which a con artist has a convincing, but fraudulent, story with the purpose of coming into your house and/or stealing money. Various campaigns to educate people exist, but they do not focus on the verbal skills people can use to prevent themselves from becoming a victim. This paper describes the conceptual design of a proposed training application. This application will provide an agent-based learning environment for high-risk doorstep scam victims. In order to create a training application, field research has been done to the content and progress of doorstep scams, which is used to create interactive scenarios.
